I wonder who came up with the idea to make a coffee mug after a lens.
See
http://cgi.ebay.com.sg/24-105mm-1-1...ccessories&hash=item3f044e8ef0#ht_5019wt_1058

I think this is the worst idea ever!
Especially since I often put my camera and lens on my dining table (we have a huge dining table in the centre of the house!)!
Imagine one morning when my mum is half asleep, half awake and wants to make a coffee... and she saw my lens on the dining table, and she takes it to the kitchen and pours boiling water onto it! Yikesss!!! :hung:

Another scenario is pour hot water into the lens thinking it is a mug. Wow! What a hot bath :sweat:

How about bringing a mug set (24-105, 70-200) to shoot a wedding.

It is easy to make silly mistakes when you are less than half awake in the morning...
And that is also the time that you would use the mug!
Sometimes brain is very lagging in the morning and you pour the hot water immediately after lifting the mug, then brain tells you this is too heavy to be a mug.
Oops... realised too late....
No, really too afraid that my mum would use my lens as a coffee mug... she is very blur in the morning and she walks around with her eyes half-closed so she cannot see clearly too.
Basically, she cannot wake up until she drinks the coffee... so anything can go wrong before then.
Very risky for my real lens!!

Yah loh, I can't see why this is a problem. It's like someone saying "you know, making those fake apples look so real is the worst idea ever!"
